Sounds like an album cut off "Thriller"

"Michael's latest single "One More Chance", sounds more like a well produced album cut, rather than the pop hit he so desperatley needs. The R. Kelly penned song itself is okay and Michael's voice is as strong and versatile as ever. The problem with "One More Chance" is that it sounds so safe and generic. It is calculated musicianship taken to an extreme. It's as if Michael is playing it so careful and plotting his musical moves. What happened to the passion and risk taking that personified Jackson's musical output in the 1980's? It is sadly missing here. Instead, "One More Chance" is predictable in its structure: 1st lyric/chorus/2nd lyric/chorus/bridge/chorus to fade....and the two remixes here add little, although the Ron G. mix does had a jolt of life (via swirling synth effects). Paul Oakenfold's Pop mix is awful at worst and awkward at best. The single for Michael Jackson's "One More Chance" is a mixed bag of sure hits and misfires - lower your expectations and you may not be that disappointed. But, there was a day when Michael Jackson offered his audience SO MUCH more than this, and seeing a talented artist like this in decline is a sad sight to behold."
